The Best Sites To Practice Speaking English This was one of the trickiest “The Best…” list for me to compile.

Just The Right Things My Favorite! I love making lists. I am a master list maker. There is something about writing down the needed groceries, errands and phone calls for each day that somehow aligns my thoughts and allows me to at least start the morning feeling organized. Over the years, I’ve used various notebooks and pads to put my lists on – some specialized, but often a plain old lined pad did the job. How to Do What You Love January 2006 To do something well you have to like it. That idea is not exactly novel. We've got it down to four words: "Do what you love."
